This is our boy “George” we mostly call him “Gorgeous Georgeous”

We adopted him from a shelter here on Staten Island exactly one month after my other dog that we took in, Rover, had died.

I could not believe the anguish and absolute feeling of emptiness I felt after we lost Rover. It was a physical pain and heaviness on my heart. I felt guilty because I cried so hard and so often for him, unlike I had ever cried for some of the humans I have lost.

Getting Georgie has been such a blessing for us. At first we were hesitant to adopt an older dog, but I am so glad we did.

I related so much to Mark’s book, and I appreciate him opening up like this to share stories of his wonderful family, including his loyal pets.

Best Regards,
Kim from New York
